Heisman Watch: Week 13

Heisman Watch: Week 13

 

1. Derrick Henry – RB Alabama: 295 carries 1,797 yards 6.1 YPC 22 TD LW 1.

46-271-1...that's called riding your horse and sticking with the results. This performance likely sealed the trophy for Henry as his signature moment.

 

2. Ezekiel Elliot – RB Ohio State: 262 carries 1,672 yards 6.4 YPC 19 TD 26 catches 176 yards. LW 2.

After a rant about only receiving 12 carries against Michigan State Elliot gets a season high 30.

 

3. Leonard Fournette – RB LSU: 271 carries 1,741 yards 6.4 YPC 18 TD. 18 catches 209 yards LW 3.

A productive game for Fornette but he isn't putting up the ridiculous numbers like he did early in the campaign.

 

4. Deshaun Watson – QB Clemson: 261-371 70.1% 3,223 yards 27 TD 10 INT 139 carries 858 yards 6.2 YPC 9 TD. LW 4.

Big performance against North Carolina should guarentee a ticket to New York for Watson. If there is someone other than Henry with a punchers chance it could be Watson.

 

5. Christian McCaffrey- RB Stanford: 287 carries 1,640 yards 5.7 YPC 7 TD 37 catches 435 yards 3 TD 31 Kickoff Returns 922 yards 29.7 AVG 1 TD. LW 5.

Held in check for most of the Notre Dame game but he remains the most versitile player at the FBS level this season.

 

6. Dalvin Cook- RB Florida State: 211 carries 1,658 yards 7.9 YPC 18 TD 22 catches 218 yards 1 TD. LW 9.

This was the kind of game Cook needed for his Heisman run and for the Seminoles to crush the Gators.

 

7. Keenan Robinson – QB Navy: 46-84 54.8% 964 yards 6 TD 1 INT 220 carries 1,113 yards  5.1 YPC 19 TD. LW 6.

Robinson accounted for over 400 yards in offense and showed he can throw as well as run against Houston.

 

8. Trevone Boykin – QB TCU: 257-396 64.9% 3,575 yards 31 TD 10 INT 123 carries 615 yards 5.0 YPC 9 TD. LW 8.

Grit and determination for the win meant more than the stats here for Boykin.

 

9. Paxton Lynch – QB Memphis: 280-406 69.0% 3,670 yards 28 TD 3 INT LW NR.

Welcome back to the countdown Paxton! For those looking for strictly numbers how about 7 TD passes in 1 half. Although this was against a weaker team the numbers look good.

 

10. Brandon Doughty – QB Western Kentucky: 322-444 72.5% 4,184 yards 42 TD 6 INT. LW NR.

Nearly 450 passes thrown on the year with a 7/1 TD-INT ratio and a completion percentage over 72%.....Doughty will get drafted in the middle rounds in 2016.

 

Honorable Mention:Tyler Matakevich, LB, Temple; Myles Garrett, DE, Texas A&M; Corey Coleman, WR, Baylor; Matt Johnson, QB, Bowling Green; Marquise Williams, QB, North Carolina; and Mason Rudolph, QB, Oklahoma State.
